{Handbags} Keeping its shape + staying organized!

About 2 weeks ago I received this email from one of my very loyal readers:


"Can you help me with something? I'm looking for SOMETHING to keep my bag's shape. One thing I hate is to carry my bag and the shape disappears as soon as you take all the paper stuffed inside from when you first buy it. So I want to carry it and it maintains the shape I felt in love with at the store! ...do you know of something."

I immediately remembered a post I read on my favorite "mommy blog" Modg Blog! I, myself, have been looking for the perfect tote bag to use as a permanent diaper bag. Something comfortable and easy. So this was what my virtual "friend" (i wish!) had recommended for ANY bag I may choose. 


Pretty neat, huh? Well it is hand-made and CUSTOM to fit any size bag that you may want, they can even make baby bottle compartments! Take a look at their Etsy shop, it is called Samorga and I can guarantee you are going to love every single one! I still haven't ordered mine because I cannot decide on a perfect bag! But I will as soon as I do. I mean what else can you ask for when it comes to easy and on the go mom's like me? ;) 

Here are some fun colors! 





Yocasta, I hope you love this fun find! I am sure these fab organizers will definitely keep your bag's shape! And did you see how affordable they are? You are welcome! :) 

Happy shopping!

{Splurge vs. Steal} Leopard Tuxedo Flats!

Two weeks I stopped by TJMaxx and scored these cute little tuxedo flats for just $24.99! I couldn't pass this {STEAL}! I've worn them a couple times now and they are super comfy and chic!




...and these are your {SPLURGE} version, from Zara for $89.90! Don't they look just alike?

I couldn't find the same exact ones that I have, on the internet since TJMaxx is first comes first served but {HERE} is a very similar version from Zappos, same brand as mine just the print is a little bigger. And of course at a fab price for just $39.95!

How I wore them...


Happy shopping!

Lea Michele at the "Do Something" Awards!

Lea Michele always gets it right... and last night was no exception. I am in love with this fresh, sexy yet simple look she pulled together... her wavy hair, the white ruffled dressed and strappy sandals are just to die.

This Giorgio Armani dress fits her so effortlessly ... with that body she can pretty much wear anything and look absolutely stunning.

{Mickey Mouse Clubhouse} My Son's 1st Party!

This past Saturday was my baby boy's very first birthday. I was excited and couldn't wait for this day to come. My son is my world and he brightens up our lives with his gorgeous little smile and precious laugh. Here is a little inside look at who I spend my days with ; )


I had Ben's outfit custom made from Booger Bear Punkin Pooh on Etsy! It was perfect, the cutest little jon-jon I've ever seen. And he was super comfortable and was able to play freely.

Sorry, no shoes... when you have a 1 year old, you have to take advantage of the time he allows you to take photos! I wore gold Nine West heels.



All paper goods were made by {YOURS TRULY}


This day was just perfect. My son had the time of his life... and well that was our goal, we love you Benji.

Naughty Monkey Fall Fashion Event!

I was delighted to be attend Naughty Monkey's Fall Fashion Event in NYC this past Friday night. I was excited to see the fabulous shoes and preview the fall line. I must say I love the change of season's here on the East Coast. So many possibilities and fun ideas all year round.

First on the agenda was {THE OUTFIT} My first stop for everything fashion is Forever 21! I was able to score this fabulous little colorful outfit for less than $50!



Now I had my outfit, shoes, purse and accessories from my closet.. nails done and my camera ready! I had a great time meeting and getting to know a little more about my favorite fashion bloggers: 



The girls were so sweet and very helpful with little tips and ideas for my own blog. I loved actually meeting person to person, since I feel like I already know them, they are on my News Feed on Facebook and Twitter daily! They are truly an inspiration to me in more than one aspect.

My favorite shoes of the night was definitely this gorgeous pump with detailed hardware, which will be available this October. How fab is this color for this fall? 



And these were just some more of the fab shoes we previewed.



 





Had an awesome time tonight, thank you to my +1, Nadia, for coming with me, it was definitely a fun-girly-inspirational night! And cheers to many more to come ; ) 

I leave you with some more photos of the night.







 Being silly!
